Have you been to New Orleans? If you answered no… you NEED to put it on your list!
I recently went for my first time… during Mardis Gras!
I didn’t know what to expect and to be honest, I thought it might actually be a bit too crazy for my liking.
I WAS DEAD WRONG! It is now one of my favorite cities in America.
It is dripping with culture and I took part in the Mardi Gras festivities with my friends who live there, so I got a local experience not a touristy one.
And yes… I did head to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter and while it was great (and pretty nuts!) , I spent most my time there outside of this area and was continually blown away by this incredible city.
I did go to Café du Monde though for the beignets… which were pretty amazing.
It was a cold night… and I wore my Chrysalis Cardi… needless to say I left with powdered sugar all over it!
Well worth it though! And New Orleans… I will definitely be back!

This extends to everything we do, including the gifts we give each other to commemorate special occasions. So, when putting together our annual Mother's Day Gift Guide, we put sustainability at the heart of each gift idea.
